The 'person of interest' that the Federal Bureau of Investigations was interested in talking with in connection with the temple shooting investigation has been identified, contacted, and ruled out as having anything to do with the incident, FBI spokesman Leonard Peace said at 2:45 p.m.

The man was observed taking video of family members gathered in a parking lot near the temple on Sunday, within an hour of the shooting. He was dressed in black, had a 9-11-01 tattoo, and did not interact with anyone at the scene.

The shooter who open fired before worship services Sunday at the Sikh Temple in Oak Creek and killed six people before he was killed by police is Wade Michael Page, a 40-year-old Army veteran, U.S. Attorney James A. Santelle said Monday.

He said officials believe he purchased the 9 mm handgun legally in Wisconsin.

At a news conference at 10 a.m., authorities said there were attempting to identify another person, a white male, who they described as "a person of interest."

A man matching the photo officials showed was seen by Journal Sentinel reporters at the scene of the temple Sunday, possibly video taping what was going on. Anyone with information on the man is asked to call 1-800-CALL-FBI.





FBI names person of interest present a Sikh temple shooting

OAK CREEK (WKOW) -- Federal officials have named a "person of interest" in the Oak Creek Sikh temple shooting where a lone gunman killed six people.

That person is pictured to the right.

FBI Special Agent in Charge Teresa Carlson did not release the name of the man, but said he was a person of interest.

Officials say he came to the scene after the shooting.

3. The authorities will no doubt find him online...

through the shooter's connections.

Does this mean that the witnesses were correct in saying there was a second person? I know it was a situation where it may have been hard to know who was who at the time, but several witnesses said that he did not act alone.

5. Time to hold Republican party, right wing 'news' and tea party accountable

They have continued Bush's 'wanted dead or alive' theme and have stoked up fear, anger and hate to keep their followers voting. They have suggested that Obama is a Muslim terrorist who wasn't born in this country and wants to take guns away so Muslims can take over the United States. They are so full of fear it isn't even funny.

It is time to stop this mess now. No, it's past time.

7. Is the photo from the day of the attacks?

That dude would stand out in a community of Sikhs.

And I'm not surprised that there may have been a second person. It makes perfect sense in the twisted White Power world that someone would capture video and photos for future white supremacist internet propaganda.

My 7-year old daughter saw this on the news. I had to explain the concept of bigotry to her.
And that you're not born a hater. And that someone taught these people to hate.

8. What shooting? Given the bare bones press coverage.

MSNBC was covering the Olympics. The only coverage it got was from CNN, and I hear no one watches them anyway. This morning it just barely got a mention on my favorite progressive talk radio shows. Not sure what's going on or if anyone else noticed this.
